obx paper canoe = going green
Tommy Karole, owner of The Paper Canoe, has always been willing to be the first to try something and his newest venture, turning his Duck waterfront restaurant into an environmentally friendly eatery is the latest. Heather Frese writing for Outer Banks This Week gives the details.
“There’s nothing like living on an island to make a person conscious of their environment. With its wind and water and sand and sky, life on the Outer Banks spotlights the interaction of man and nature. This connection to the ecosystem of the Outer Banks has led restaurateur Tommy Karole, owner of The Paper Canoe in Duck, to make some changes at his restaurant. “I’m working with a nonprofit organization now that basically guides you into turning your whole restaurant green,” Tommy says. “From the paper towels to the light bulbs you use to where your food comes from.” Tommy hopes that the greening of The Paper Canoe will set up a model for other restaurants on the Outer Banks to follow.”
